"Imagine that great sense of relief when you allow yourself to drop tension from the body, dissolve limiting beliefs, release toxins and negativity and instead feel expansive joy, clearer thinking and endless possibilities in your life." A mini Autumn Yoga class by Martine Ford in the garden of Spirit Yoga in Port Macquarie. Demonstrating 10 of 20 yoga poses from the book - Autumn Yoga: 20 poses for the Lung and Large Intestine Meridians, available on Amazon for just $3.99 USD at the following link. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009YBALE6
These yoga poses activate the energy channels of the lung and Intestine. When these organs become balanced it can help us release all things not serving us and making room for more growth.
According to the Chinese Five Element theory, the body is made up of the same five primary elements that exist in nature -- Wood, Fire, Metal, Earth and Water. Each of these elements links to different organs, and affects us physically and psychologically.
In autumn the metal element is strongest, so activating the meridians (energy channels) of the lung and large intestine brings balance to these organs, as well as more vitality, harmony and clarity. Lung imbalance can cause symptoms like, sadness, despair, anxiety, grief, allergies, nasal congestion, shortness of breath and bronchitis.
Large Intestine imbalance can cause symptoms like, physical weakness, depression, irritability, fear, pimples, headaches, difficulty thinking, concentrating & making decisions.
Spirit Yoga classes mostly use traditional yoga poses and some yoga therapy exercises that are based on bringing energy (chi or prana) to the meridian channels located through-out the body. Autumn Yoga will bring balance to your body and life during the Autumn Season, so you can function with greater ease.
